The most accurate way to measure the fertilisation ability of semen in vitro is to test it using abattoir-derived cumulus-oocyte-complexes (COCs). While often sperm has been assessed for motility and morphology when collected and cryopreserved, sometimes internal issues (eg. DNA fragmentation) that cannot be visualised by microscopy can severely impact IVF results. These results can then be used by producers to finalise in vitro mating’s of commercially collected COC/oocytes from their valuable donor cows and heifers. It will also assist in the preparation of enough semen straws per bull at the time of IVF. Taking the time to test semen
Our Bovine In Vitro Embryo Production Suite is available now.
We enable rapid genetic gain and improve the efficiency of breeding programs. As leaders in IVF technology for cattle breeding, we’re fostering rapid genetic improvement through the use of the best bull and cow genetics. We work with others that deliver IVF to dairy and beef breeders. This is how we were able to develop our pipeline of products focussed on improving your cattle breeding results.
